Keeping Your Produce Healthy

I found this cool article about some new research they're trying out that may help keep your produce good for you as it travels from the plant to the warehouse to the grocery store.

The main topic is getting lettuce to be better for you, but at the end they mention using the technology to keep nutrients in other plants longer. And it's completely "natural" since they're using UVB light, which is some of the same light that comes from the sun (and as they mention, missing in northern growing climates).

We'll see if it really ends up being good for you.

"To be sent greeting... by... the word of wisdom...

Given for a principle with promise, adapted to the capacity of the weak and the weakest of all saints...

All wholesome herbs [or plants] God hath ordained for the consitution, nature, and use of man-

Every herb [or plant] in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving...

And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings... shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones...

And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint."
